Rants and raves

  • Follow Metro

Comments from our readers.

RAVES TO Superintendent Charlie Nagle and his assistant Robbie Jarrell for the informative high school rezoning meeting they conducted at Greenbrier High School.

RAVES TO the courteous and helpful young servers at the new restaurant on the Few Parkway.

TO THE PERSON WHO doesn't like sports on the front page, shame on you. You should be so proud of the ASU Jaguars and other sports teams whose students achieve these heights. Hint: Don't read your paper Masters Week.

AUGUSTA CHRONICLE, I WANT to thank you for having this very fine column. And I would like to say raves to former mayor Scott Dean and his wife and children. He was a fine mayor of Harlem and people didn't appreciate him like they should.

A RANT FOR THE CHRONICLE . Your right-wing rag is the opposite of a free press. If a ranter complains about Bush or Republicans, chances are very small it makes into print.

THIS IS A RANT TO ALL race fans out there. If you get tired of watching the race on North Leg, turn off on Idlewilde. The spend limit is gonna drop between 55 and 70 because this is a 30-mile zone. Keep your kids out of the street 'cause this is definitely a race track.

A RANT AGAINST ALL the people who are complaining against Rep. Broun's "Robocalls." What he is doing is a great service for our community. He's engaging the public. He' s giving people an opportunity to speak their mind, to listen to other people's views.

A RANT FOR YOU bicycle riders and you joggers. A car or a truck is more powerful than your two legs or your two wheels on your bicycle. Either quit acting like you own the road or get out of our way

I READ IN THE CHRONICLE they are letting 8- to 16-year-olds in free at the Masters with a paid patron. Evidently they don't consider people here in Augusta would like to go the Masters. I have tried for 63 years to get into the Masters just to see the Par 3 and cannot do it, cannot even get tickets.

patriciathomas....Your

patriciathomas....Your cynicism may be applicable to this:

Dear Augusta Chronicle/North Augusta Today: PLEASE stop littering people's properties EVERY week, with UNSOILICITED copies of the North Augusta Today being randomly thrown in VERY irate property owner's yards, driveways, etc. Put them in a rack at the store, like the real estate mags!

Sliique, didn't you know that

Sliique, didn't you know that most drivers purposely get lost in our subdivisions just to throw their trash on our yards cause they don't want to get fined for littering on our roadways?? They do this every weekend and I started taking down license plate numbers cause I am out every weekend getting up their stupid trash to include beer bottles--I DON"T DRINK!

To the Ranter complaining

To the Ranter complaining about the AC concerning Republicans....I guess you didn't know the owner IS a Republican. It helps just to be Independent anyway cause then you can say bad things about both parties and you won't be so single minded about what is political or not.

The Chronicle needs to be

The Chronicle needs to be right wing, to counteract the liberal Richmond County Commission and the three left-wing television news stations.

yes they would CBBP, that's

yes they would CBBP, that's why the AC uses the AP for national news(way left) and has a conservative agenda on its editorial section(opinion). Two wings, smooth flight. That's why the comments section is always so pleasant.

Someone please explain. How do you "speak your mind" and get the other end "to listen to other people's views" when you get one of these "Robocalls" ?

I also agree with the ranter

I also agree with the ranter about the bicycles. Only an idiot would ride such an unprotected vehhicle amongst cars and feel safe. And as for the "same road, same rules" theory the idiots have, they do not pay taxes for those bikes. Everytime you buy a gallon of gas you're paying road taxes. About 50 years ago I had a uncle who would ride a bike in Augusta as he became disallusioned with cars his 1st time.....They made him buy a tag for it. How many people buy a tag for one now? Was that really a law and is it still on the books...If so we need the money to offset Sonny Barnes tax shortcomings partially because of the 7.3 million dollar horse barn built in Houston Co......,

For the obviously vision

For the obviously vision impaired person ranting that the rants against President Bush go unpublished, get some one to read a few for you.
